An introductory meeting will take place in * MS, 6221 on Thursday, October 10th from 4-5PM* where teams can be formed and more information will be given. This competition is ideal for students who have taken Math 142 or some upper division applied math courses. For those who are new to campus or lower class standing, this would also be a good meeting to attend to see what requirements are ideal to be eligible for next year!
